CCC’s Interiors Group played a major role in getting the new Bloomfield Hills High School ready for the first day of school on September 8th. Working for Construction Manager Barton Malow, CCC was responsible for the interior buildout of the new complex including all ceiling systems, walls, custom wood paneling, doors and hardware, window treatments and visual display surfaces. It came down to the wire with all construction hands on deck over the Labor Day weekend, but through hard work and good communication, the doors opened on time and without a problem on Tuesday morning.
The new Bloomfield Hills High School located on Long Lake Road just west of Telegraph Road (on the old Andover High School site) was constructed to consolidate the students from both Lahser and Andover High Schools into one larger, more efficient, state-of-the-art technology complex. The new school is approximately 372,000 square feet, took 27 months to complete, and has a capacity for 1,800 students. It was financed through a $58.6 million voter-approved construction bond, along with an additional $20 million in funds from the district. The school boosts of nine learning communities that create a personalized and collaborative learning environment, three large music rooms, an 800-seat auditorium, a 12-lane swimming pool with seating for 400, and 1,700 bleacher seats in the gym.
